Summer Darjeeling – 50g Postcard

£9.95

An outstanding, full-bodied Second Flush Darjeeling produced by a co-operative that grows tea at the abandoned tea farm at Dawai Pani, now better known as Mineral Spring and processed at the factory on Singell Estate. It is made from seed-grown Chinese bushes descended from the cultivars brought over to Darjeeling from Wuyi in the 1800s.

The tea is aromatic and fruity with a pronounced muscatel/grape sweetness and notes of cacao and rose which are appropriately similar to those found in Wuyi oolong and black teas. For the price this is one of our favourite black teas of the year and we’re very pleased to be able to offer a such a tea grown on small farms that easily competes with factory tea many times the cost.

Brew with freshly boiled water and a teaspoon of tea per cup. This tea can be taken with or without milk.
